Los Roques archipelago is a federal dependency of Venezuela consisting of approximately 350 islands, cays, and islets in a total area of 40.61 square kilometers and is located 80 miles (128 km) directly north of the port of La Guaira.
The islands’ pristine coral reef attracts many “high-end” visitors, especially from Europe. Because of the wide variety of seabirds and rich aquatic life, the Venezuelan government declared the Los Roques a National Park in 1972.
